Systemic Risk Survey Results

As part of its statutory objective to protect and enhance financial stability in the United Kingdom, the Bank works to identify risks to the stability of the UK financial system. The Systemic Risk Survey contributes to this activity by quantifying and tracking, on a biannual basis, market participants’ perceptions of such risks. The survey covers aggregate risks to the UK financial system, including the probability of a future high-impact event and confidence in the stability of the UK financial system, as well as specific sources of risk which could either have a particularly large impact or be especially challenging to manage as a firm.

The survey has been undertaken biannually since 2009, following a pilot survey conducted in July 2008. Survey results were published for the first time on a standalone basis in November 2011 but prior results were presented in the Financial Stability Report.
